New Nick Story in F&SF

NickFSFHappy to announce that the 2018 Nov/Dec issue of The Magazine of Fantasy & Science Fiction has landed, and my story is in it. I’m thrilled to be among some of the finest short fiction writers in the field, including one of my personal favorites, Jeffery Ford. Special thanks to editor C.c. Finlay and all the readers who love the short form as much as I do—and still don’t mind reading stuff in print. : )

First page sneak peek!

Yoga and Aliens

September 2018 has given me two great books to remember. One of them, Annex, is by my super talented science fiction pal Rich Larson.

The yoga book from DK has some surprisingly good vegetarian recipes and dietary advice in the back, along with tips on breathing and meditation. Like most yoga books I find, I try not to let all the poses I can’t do depress me. : /

Austin Write-In

Austins2018

Thanks to my pals in Bee Cave, Texas, just outside Austin, for hosting a weekend write-in. Great friends, food, wine, conversation, time and space to be creative, and several glorious days with nothing to think about but a few of my favorite things in life. Photo snapped at the Grove Wine Bar & Kitchen in nearby Lakeway. Love you guys!
